Is parasite resistance/susceptibility genetic? My keeper buckling from this year has not matured anywhere near how I wanted. He’s had 2 rounds of treatment for coccidiosis, just treated tapeworms, and now has dog poo like poop again. He looked so good as a baby but I’m so disappointed in how he has matured. We keep everything clean and have never had issues like this before. The other buckling/wether he’s in with haven’t had any issues, though due to their age we’ve treated everyone each time this guy had problems. His sire is our goat who had really bad mite issues this past winter, so I’m wondering if there is a genetic component. His twin sister looks amazing and is our nicest doeling from this years kid crop, so maybe he got the short end of the genetic stick. I’m pretty sure we’re going to wether him at this point. I don’t want to pass on bad genes, especially with a buck.
